Powerful UK rock quartet, THE FIRES BELOW, are set to stake a claim with the release of their fiery new EP, Masquerade, out Friday 1st September. The high-flying Londoners have also just released the single and video of the EP’s namesake out now.
THE FIRES BELOW have engineered a sound that merges formidable vocal lines with punchy and spiky guitar work, and a beefy rhythm section that will blow the roof right off. The feisty four-piece, with their roots placed in punk rock, stoner, and metal, have woven a set list comprised of bangers that will take up residence in your very soul.
Featuring Smithy (Vocals, Guitar), Del (Drums), Si (Bass), and Sam (Guitar), THE FIRES BELOW started life as a lockdown project, and by last year, the heavy rockers were poised to unleash their wall of sound to the masses. Rampant live performances followed, along with the release of their singles Normality and Out to Destroy. Both songs picked up strong traction and with the build on, THE FIRES BELOW headed to the studio to commence work on their debut EP, Masquerade.
Now with a scorching debut EP in hand, THE FIRES BELOW are ready to break out. Loaded with four killer cuts that twist and contort, the release promises to pound your ears into submission. The EP is hugely impressive and sure to pave the way for the UK stout rock crew. Vocalist and Guitarist Smithy remarks about the creation of the release: “A lot of hard work has gone into our first EP. The recording process was fun, inspiring, and exciting to hear everything come together. There is a lot of energy, pain and anger in our music about the state of the world today that we think everyone can relate to it.”
With a flow of material planned for the remainder of the year, as well as a series of profile live shows, 2023 is lined up to be the band’s big year.
EP track listing: 1) Masquerade; 2. Another Day; 3. So It Goes; 4. Vigilant.
